DETROIT (WJBK) - In September 2015, Corey Maison's story was everywhere. Her mom posted a video online of her decision to give her teenager hormones to transition into a female. Now, 18 months later, Erica Maison is making a similar transition.
Corey's mom surprised her in September with her first dose of hormones. The transgender teen had been waiting to get the hormones for three years and Erica wanted to capture the emotional moment. It was soon viewed by millions.
In the 18 months after that big reveal, Erica had something else she wanted to share: she also would soon start transitioning into Eric and became a man.
Now, mother and son are becoming father and daughter - together.
As it turns out, Eric had been wrestling with gender identity for years.
"When I was younger I used to wish for cancer so I would have to get a mastectomy," he told Tara Brown on 60 Minutes
Australia. He also said that he 'hated being pregnant'.
Eric said that despite their changes, the Maison are staying together:
Eric said since undergoing a double mastectomy, it lifted years of anguish and that life is pretty good now.
